Stealth Captain America & Brock Rumlow Minimates Review
Marvel Minimates series 55 is focused on the Marvel movie, Captain America The Winter Soldier! Today we’re looking at one of the two packs with the titular character, Captain America in his stealth uniform and Brock Rumlow.
Cap is seen here in his Stealth Uniform. This is the same dark blue uniform he’s wearing at the beginning of the movie. It has black and silver highlights with brown accents on the belts and gloves
Cap’s helmet can be removed and he has a spare hair piece for an unmasked, Steve Rogers appearance.
Cap also comes with a spare hand/harness piece that allows the shield to be plugged on it like all the other Captain America Minimates.
The shield is his stealth version decoed in blue and silver.
As I previously mentioned, it can be stored on the peg on his glove, or the peg on his shoulder straps
The raised straps molded on the inside of the shield can also allow the hands to slightly grasp them
The outfit has a lot of tiny details including the US Flag and Shield logos on the shoulders (Unfortunately the Shield logo (and the star on Cap’s Shield in a previous picture) had a slight miscalculation with the tampo machine and the black lines didn’t line up with the silver background) This happens from time to time with these tiny, intricate details.
Like most Minimates, Captain America has a good range of motion and the shield helps the figure strike dynamic action poses.
Next up is Shield agent, Brock Rumlow. He’s got a tactical outfit on.
Brock’s tactical vest can be removed to show a t-shirt with grey straps underneath. This appearance is just like in the movie but comic fans will take note that this seems to be an homage to Brock’s alter ego, Crossbones. Who usually wears a black shirt with crossed bones on the front.
Brock also has a Shield logo tampo on his shoulder and he comes with two leg holsters and pistols. The holsters hold the pistols really well.
Included in Brock’s arsenal is a machine gun and his shock baton
At first glance Brock Rumlow felt like a generic military character, but the more I played with him, the more I enjoyed the figure. The deco has a nice contrast with the grey straps and the accessories work pretty well.
This two pack has a nice new Captain America and includes a modern Captain America enemy (Though at this point in the movie they are on the same team) Both figures have their own pluses (Cap’s details and Rumlow’s accessories) that equals into a nice full minimate set.
